Washington Nationals - Signed P Livan Hernandez to a 1-year, $1 million contract.
Last week, I asked my Twitter followers (I’m @DSzymborski, which I constantly forget to mention publicly) which team would sign Livan Hernandez to a terrible contract this offseason. But, as it turns out, Livan not only didn’t hit free agency, but actually signed a good contract, only a roughly $100K a year raise. Generally, you mix Livan Hernandez and a pitcher with a 3.49 ERA and a terrible K rate and you get something wacky. But this is a good signing at the price, hence the attempted interrobang. Incentives can take the deal higher, but if Livan pitches like he did in 2009. And 2008. And 2007. And 2006, then the Nats won’t have a problem letting him go next year.
Thankfully, those who like snark still have the possibility of Jeff Francoeur being on the free-agent market this offseason. Hopefully something to do with Kansas City - I have experience drawing Dayton Moore.
